We all need a little music in our lives. A good song can answer a question, soothe the soul and provide an escape. It can recall a memory in the most vivid detail and evoke the most intense feelings.
“Music is the great uniter. An incredible force. Something that people who differ on everything and anything else can have in common.” -Sarah Dessen
We created Tunesday Tuesday to do just that, bring people together through music.
Every Monday night at 9pm the link up will go live at The Patchwork Paisley, Drinking the Whole Bottle, Momma Candy, and MrsTeeLoveLifeLaughter. We will designate a theme, and hope that you will share a song that embodies said theme for you. Post the video for the song, an audio clip, the lyrics- however you want to do it. Then, write a little something about why this song captures the week's theme and link up your post here with us!
Visit your hosts after 9pm (EST) on Monday nights
to find out what the theme is for the week!
It would be awesome if you would follow your lovely hostesses (links below,) but other than that- let's have fun with this! Know a fellow music lover who should get in on the party? Let them know about it! Want to share your groove with the world? Tweet it should you feel so inclined. Want to grab a button? Go for it. It's really pretty and you'll find it down below.

John and I didn't really have "a song" for the 3 years we dated before saying "I do" in 2007. When it came time to work with the DJ to pick all the songs for the "key moments" of our wedding, we had a list of traditional songs to choose from, but it felt so wrong to try and pick our song from a list! I really wanted something that resonated or represented us in an organic way and it just felt forced. We had many conversations about it and at some point I told John how much I loved the song "Glory of Love" growing up. He was a big fan himself, mostly because you can't hear that song without immediately thinking: Karate Kid II. Any self-respecting 80's lover can appreciate the iconic image of Daniel-san getting wooped on by group of skeletons, young love blossoming with Elizabeth Shue to the sound of "Cruel Summer," and everything about the ever-lovable Mr. Miyagi for starters. Plus, who doesn't want "a man who will fight for their honor?"
